Fish week 733 Returns 84 Rod average 8.7
The past week has been one of the best we have ever witnessed at Grafham Water. On Saturday one angler caught over 20 fish from the Harbour Arms in one afternoon. Meanwhile another angler on the opposite arm caught five pounder after five pounder! Incredible bank fishing. One of our regular season ticket holders fished on three consecutive days, arriving at 6am and leaving at noon. He bagged up on all three days and caught and released 10 plus rainbows for good measure. The fish haven’t been feeding so readily on the dam so head for the south shore; anywhere from the Harbour by the Seat up to Plummers car park.
The boat fishing has been just as productive, the beginning of the week saw good catches from the north shore on traditional methods and buzzers. However, as the week progressed the fish began to be caught in high numbers from the south shore. These fish, although mostly stockies, have been coming out at over 3lb as the fish we have been stocking recently have been of a very high and large standard.
Boat anglers have been catching using buzzers as well as lures. If you fancy a bit of roly poly then that also works. If you want to twiddle a boobie or leave a buzzer under the bung, that works too. Head to Grafham and start catching some fish!
